The legend of Jeffrey Loria being a Grade A asshole are legendary and go back to his days of holding the city of Montreal hostage over a baseball stadium deal. His charade eventually found its way to South Florida and the Marlins franchise. He eventually got his wish for Miami taxpayers to foot most of the bill to build Marlins Ballpark, which just happened to open tonight. What does he do on Opening Night? Has Muhammed Ali throw out the first pitch. JUMP!
RAFAEL FURCAL GETTING NAKED IN THE CARDINALS DUGOUT! FURCAL WITH HIS GAME PANTS AROUND HIS ANKLES! ON ESPN! SFW, YET SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES! FURCAL MAKING UNI ADJUSTMENTS! Everyone can relax, just realize that this Marlins Ballpark offers multiple camera angles and this is what you'll be getting to look at this season. JUMP!
Who's in the mood to drop between $595,000 & $19,800,000 on a house these days? Are you a baseball junkie who wants to live in a house where your hero has slept? If you're in the market for a new pad and have the money, we suggest these 12 homes that need a buyer. Help these cash strapped former & current millionaires get out from under houses such as Adrian Beltre & his 15 bath mansion. Here is the ultimate piece of memorabilia. JUMP!
Buried deep in a report from the Dallas Observer on the new food offerings at Texas Rangers games this year was a tidbit about the $26 'Champion' Dog that has taken the ballpark hot dog to the next level. You might remember this beast as the 2-foot meat missile that also includes runny cheese, onions jalapenos and some chili sauce. The big question from us was whether there would be any morons who'd eat the meat. Answer: YES! JUMP!
Baseball gets started for real tonight in Miami where the Marlins 'officially' open their new 'ballpark' that just happens to include a pool in left field. As you can see, the pool has already been christened by a couple of bikini chicks. Tonight the pool 'officially' opens against the Cardinals on ESPN. As for food, you'll be able to purchase lobster rolls, veggie burgers and lots of other crap that doesn't resemble a hotdog. The real fun at Marlins Ballpark - the window washers. Let's get rolling!
We're sure they love him in St. Louis, but former Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal is persona non grata in Los Angeles. That's what happens when you hit .197 in your last season with the team. That's probably why Furcal is giving away his Los Angeles house. Dude is about to take a loss of almost $500,000 to get rid of his fancy pad in the suburbs. Frankly, it will be nice to wipe his memory entirely from the area. House photos - JUMP!
Jared Sullinger took a slap to the face from a Kansas player in the second game on the Final Four tonight. The Kansas player went right for the face instead of the ball. The Kansas Jayhawks took on the Ohio State Buckeyes. CBS decided to show us how "flexible" the Kansas cheerleaders were in the pre-game show. Between that and the #kuboobs phenomenon, Kansas is winning in the hottest women. JUMP!
Yeah, they do things a little different down in Mississippi. Like eating fire for breakfast. No bacon and eggs, no hearty bowl of cereal. Fire, people. Ole Miss assistant baseball coach Cliff Godwin demonstrates just that in this video, which we're sure will be a hit with recruits and badasses everywhere. Godwin downs some fire for breakfast and his buddy, who's entirely too serious about the whole thing, yells "game day!" Way to go, brah! JUMP!
The bad news for Phillies pitcher Michael Schwimer this spring came around March 20 when he was sent to team's minor league camp. The good news: Schwimer recently locked up girlfriend and BC favorite Missy Coles to a long-term free agent deal via an engagement ring. What does this mean in the grand scheme of the WAG-dome? Not much other than the fact other ladies coming through the Phillies WAG pipeline must stay on top of their game. JUMP!
Via: A man claiming to have a weapon robbed a Hampden Bank branch at 475 Longmeadow St. of an undisclosed amount of cash Thursday afternoon, police said. The lone suspect walked up to a teller and handed her a note demanding cash, he said. No weapon was shown but it was implied in the note that the man was armed, he said. So this one should be easy. Black dude who looks like David Ortiz...Sox opening day tickets...lots of $20s. GET HIM!
If you do any flying out of San Francisco, you might find a curious sight on the runway -- a themed San Francisco Giants Virgin America plane. Yeah, it sports to hometown team's logo, but it also sports a beard because, why the hell not? The great thing is, you can fly on it. It's not a team charter. It's a commercial airplane. So if you're a huge Giants fan, then this is probably the only way you should travel. JUMP!
Later this summer when the Royals and Angels engage in a bench-clearing brawl you can refer to this video as to why there were fisticuffs. The ball is flying in Tempe today. The Royals ripped three dongs before the Angels batted in the 2nd. That's when the Halos got on the board with back-to-back-to-back shots to make it a 7-3 game. Again, a Spring Training game. The very next pitch from Royals pitcher Everett Teaford was into the back of Peter Bourjos. JUMP!
Via: It’s a bit of a cold case, and this woman certainly looks pretty cold. You may have seen these photos before, because the FBI and police had been looking for this gun toting gal for nearly two a a half years. It was October 9, 2009 when she went storming into the National City Bank on South Mason with a gun in one hand and a knife in the other. She grabbed her cash and headed out the front door. Scared to snitch? We'll turn her in: firstname.lastname@example.org
Those of you just waking up need to know that the MLB season opener is underway in Japan. A's vs. Mariners. Ichiro leading off in his homeland. Goosebumps for those of us raised on baseball. Only problem? You can't watch this game live via your cable provider. Want to watch it live? Gotta order MLB.tv. And the divide between baseball and the NFL/NBA just keeps widening. Oh well, you can watch the replay starting at 9 a.m. EST. Let's get rolling!
Our sources continue to work their sources, but word on the street at Tampa Rays camp is that short-legged mack daddy Don Zimmer has new arm candy for the 2012 season. Just look at that smile coming from a guy walking around town with Playboy Playmate Jaime Edmondson on his arm. Just flaunting it in the face of all the old coots still married after 61 years. You have to imagine being Don Zimmer is a helluva life. Women just throwing themselves at you. JUMP!
Ladies, your baseball dream has come true. The Texas Rangers have finally figured out what you want to eat during a game in the middle of August when it's like 115 at Rangers Ballpark. Here it is, the 2-foot hot dog that'll set you back $26. The silver lining is that this meat missile is meant for two consumers. Imagine racing your husband/boyfriend/partner to the middle. So. Much. Fun! JUMP!
Via:Red Sox pitcher Bobby Jenks is facing DUI charges after deputies say he struck two vehicles in the parking lot of Babes strip club in Fort Myers early this morning. Jenks, 31, was pulled over in a white Mercedes SUV near the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Colonial Boulevard for driving erratically, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report. Deputies said Jenks said he was "all over the roadway" because he had taken too many muscle relaxers.
Still trying to figure out if this Phillies bro wet shat himself or if this was just a case of being a moron and sitting on wet outfield grass during yesterday's Yankees game. Yes, this is the kind of sh*t that mesmerizes us on a Friday before hitting Happy Hour. In March Madness news, kudos for Indiana. Why? Because they have the balls to push the basketball up and down against Kentucky. Might have lost, 102-90, but still deserves our appreciation. Let's get rolling!
Shouldn't there be a marketing meeting between Hooters and MLB where the sides come together for a campaign to put Hooters girls down the line at all spring training games? Is there a logical reason to watch past the 5th inning of these games. That's the only reason we're still watching at 6 p.m. on a Friday night. Totally want to see a Hooters girl diving for a liner. Instead we get this chick booting a grounder. JUMP!
